Bush TR82C (June 1959) very low serial number makes this one rare

The TR82 Series radio's was the first step away from valves as used on the MB60 radsio. It is hard to understand how the paying public were so cautious of the transistor, but that is why the MB60 was in production for around 3 years before confidence was gained. As the design of the radio was created by Ogle Design a company based in Hertordshire in particular to attract teenagers though at a purchase price of £17 8s 11d plus our VAT , then purchase tax, it was quite expensive, but in those days a single transistor would cost more than a pound to replace, these having 7 showed that design and specification went hand in hand. Of course tooling costs were not effected as the only change to the body was not to stamp out the mains plug fitting at the rear.

These radio's are still very popular with collectors and people who wish to buy into that classic look and due to the large quantites around we can still find good examples to enjoy.

This one is quite rare due to its early serial number only 608, based on the limited information as to production quantites created, it can be a logical step to consider that hundereds were produced in a month, so based on that i would think this was produced in June 1959, just a month after the release date.

Condition is very good, with no marking or damage to the case and no chips to the rear cover (common issue), The transistors OC44, OC45 , OC71 and OC78 are all original, the I.F stages and RF have been re-aligned to the original Bush data sheets. The radio comes complete with battery and full one years warranty

The internal view of the clean chassis of the first series of these popular radio.

The radio is a 2 band portable receiver built with early Mullard transistors, a press-button waveband switch on the top selects medium or long wave. A co-axial socket is provided for the connection if required to a car, (car radio's were not fitted then as standard and were expensive)

The cost reflects the historic value for this particular receiver Close up view of the serial number

The Bush TR82 model followed the success of the MB60, and the first series uses the OC transistors as can be seen in the photo. The C stands for the colour in this case light blue/green case with a dark blue Rexin band around the middle, the metal trim being chrome.

Bush TR130 (1966)

The Bush TR130 is reputed to be one of Britian's best selling radio of the mid to late 1960's. Hence there are a number of them still around. The quality of the radio chassis is first class and when first introduced in 1965 cost £16.0, to aid sales the radio apart from Long Wave, Medium Wave also has the 208 Metre band ( Luxembourg) , very popular.

The first series had OC81 output transistors but within a short time were upgraded to the AC range which were more reliable and were able to cope with higher output requirements from a portable.

The radio is a perfect mid 1960's classic for the collector.

The radios general condition is very good with only slight marking to the tuning dial, it comes complete with a PP9 9.0 volt battery and 1 years gurantee.
